Boesen, Gudmund.
Venetianske Glas Pa Rosenborg - Venetian Glass at Rosenborg Castle.

Copenhagen 1960. Edition limited to 1000 copies.

A sumptuously illustrated catalog of the unique collection of Venetian glass brought back to Rosenborg Castle in 1709 by King Frederik IV. Venetian glass is not common in Danish collections of this period- most imported glass was of Germanic origin. Much of this glass represented gifts from the Venetian Senate, and is of the highest quality and inventiveness. Fabulous tableware is augmented by such unusual items as candelabra, glass fruits, and a glass knife, spoon and fork. The tri-lingual text includes a full English translation. A real treat for Venetian glass lovers.

Hardcover. 8"x12", about 250 pages color frontispiece, several b/w illustrations in the text, and 143 items illustrated in b/w. A fine copy in a fine dj.
